Default New build randomly shuts down

OK so here it goes...built myself a gaming rig about a month ago. Everything was going fine until I woke up one morning to find my PC had shut down overnight. This happened again about a week later, I usually have no programs running with the exception of messenger, xfire, etc. Now twice in the past week it has shut while I was gaming. PC just completely shuts off, and I can restart it immediately. Specs are as follows...

AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe

OCZ Dual Channel 2 GB RAM

EVGA 8800 GTS 640 MB

1 WD and 2 Seagate SATA HD

OCZ 700W GameXStream PSU

Windows XP SP2

As I said earlier, all of this gear is about a month old, bought brand new. Any ideas?
